About Araujo Estate

Since 1990, Bart and Daphne Araujo have carried on the tradition of making monster Cabernets from the Eisele Vineyard, adding Syrah into the mix as well. Their flagship bottling is dense, powerful and rich, typically with soil-inflected notes of plum, mocha, tobacco and smoke, and very suave tannins.

Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2012

(66% cabernet sauvignon, 10% each merlot and petit verdot, 8% cabernet franc and 6% malbec):  Ruby-red.  Cassis, blueberry, licorice and violet on the nose, with hints of dusty earth and leather.  Lush and plump in the mouth, with a slightly medicinal character to the savory dark berry and mocha flavors.  I'd peg this right between Old World and New.  Nicely integrated acidity and broad, dusty tannins energize the persistent chocolatey finish.  Very harmonious for this second wine.
